Dark amber pour with a brown head that totally went away. Aroma is malt and a hint of spice. Taste is malty, a little smoke and spice. OK flavor. The pepper is detectable as the beer warms. An ok beer.

Good beer... Tastes like a malty Oktoberfest with spice and more layers of complexity... Nice ale... Real smooth and drinkable not spicy... Just a slight hint towards the presence of the chili... Pretty good Chicago beer via Wisconsin ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber brown with a light tan head and unpleasant grainy aroma. Taste is of grains, malt, and caramel but overall doesn’t come together nicely while I dot get any chili. Not a good tasting craft beer

Dark amber pour, no head. Nose is grainy and not very agreeable. Taste is grainy and actually quite rancid. Could not finish it. Would rather drink a lager ! Please ! Quaff Score 2 / 10

Bottle at coles in Chicago. Deeper amber pour, medium bodied. Caramel, molasses notes upfront with pepper/chili heat towards finish that lingers on the palate. Ok

Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours an amber-brown with almost no head. Faint lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel, peat and rum raisin. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, simple sugar and some vegetalness. Medium bodied and very sweet. Down through the glass, there is some presence of the chiles; more from a late burn than actual flavor. Very sweet and sticky. Finishes sweet with a light burn, and sweet. Hmmm. So sweet as to be undrinkable, although the chiles do help dry it out.

Dogbrick (13036) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Dark amber pour with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and dark fruits. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, peppers and figs. The finish is malty up front with a mild peppery aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

wlajwl (6816) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 15, 2013
Aroma is pale lager sweetness with a hint of spice. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a bit more spice and mixed with a slight tartness in the finish.

ChiGuy68 (599) - Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. Poured a rich, dark brown with a tan head. Mild malt and spice aroma. I’m a pepper fan so I like the hit of Ancho Chilli. It’s an unusual beer, but it works for me.

Bottle purchased at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell. Clear reddish brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, lager yeast and peppers. Malty and caramelly flavor with some toffee and a slight peppery finish.
